This site exists because I got sick of what the web has become. I wanted to return to the web I remember from the late 90s and early 2000s, before every web site and every search results page were just trying to sell you something. I went searching to find if that web still existed.

It does!

The next step was to try to get involved, and that meant building my own site. I already have web sites online, but I hadn't had a personal site for a while. It still gives me that same feeling of excitement I used to get when I was a kid knowing that when I publish something, anyone could see it. It's liberating to create things without trying to monetize them.

I'm so glad you found me! I'll probably write about video games, technology, the internet, and maybe other things like urbanism and philosophy. If you like those things, you've come to the right place!

See how this site was made

This site is built with the Eleventy static site generator. It's entirely open source, so you can see exactly how it's built. It's hosted on Netlify.

Let's be internet friends!

You can follow me on Mastodon. I tend to be pretty quiet on there, but if you mention me, I will respond.

If you want to link to my site, you can use these buttons!

A button with A button with a purple border and a character from Earthbound glowing green on top of a black background. To his right, A button resembling a dialog box from the SNES RPG Earthbound. "Devon.LoL" is written inside in white.

Feel free to skip the buttons too if you prefer. I personally prefer when links to other sites have some context, so text links are even better. Any link is appreciated.
